LED Lighting: Reducing Costs and Helping to Protect the Natural World

Increased demand usually translates to higher prices for consumers. As the need for electricity grows, the focus on conservation also continues toÊincrease. Many companies that manufacture electrical products are working hard to develop items whichÊuse less energy, reduce costs, and have a softer footprint on the environment. LED lighting is a perfect example of this innovative approach to the efficient use of electrical power. ...Read More

Understanding LED Drivers and Controllers

If youÕve worked in the lighting industry in an engineering capacity before, then you understandÊhow costly it can be to erect architectural lighting equipmentÊthroughout the structure of a theme park, concert stage or onÊthe night-time deck of a cruise ship. The rgb LED controller is the savior.ÊIt allows millions of bits (potentially) via randomizer to quickly produce the many colors needed for the event in question. ÊBecause it does this intelligently, the hardest part is simply finding out certain parameters and entering these values on the ERP Power website to obtain the specific parts. ...Read More

LEDs: An Ubiquitous Technology for Many Industries

The explosive growth of LED technology is one of those things whichÊhave had multi-industry benefits Ð particularly with the invention of the high-output diode. When compared to incandescent, halogens, and mercury-bulbs, the LED is simply the most efficientlyÊknown way to convert an electric current into visible light. InÊother alternatives, a sizable amount of energy is lost as unused waste heat. ...Read More

Understanding Power Conversion in Light Emitting Diodes

If thereÕs a single advantage that LEDs have over formerly traditional methods of providing illumination, itÕs the significantly increased ROI in terms of power conversion. ÊLEDs are much less costly to power and return much more actual light Ð instead of merely wastingÊheat Ð per wattage invested. ...Read More

Forward vs. Reverse Phase Dimming

Forward phase dimming is the most common dimming method used in the U.S., with over 150 million controllers in current operation. While it is surpassed by reverse phase dimming in some ways, it still has many important benefits, which include. ...Read More
